Rj, what are your requirements? The Buick Verano is really nice. I'd love to see you post a pic of a lowered, turbo manual Verano.

You've done a great job keeping that Ion looking good. How's the Solstice?

And I second oncblu's recommendation of a new Buick Verano; I know you're not crazy about the Chevy Cruze, right?

Requirements................Build me a Chevy or Buick thats equipt just like my ION 3 with the enhanced performace package. Yes I know some other crap like TPMS will be on the car so the price will go up.....thats fine. But I rather have auto headlamps, auto dimming rear view mirror and map light then a blue tooth or yellow teeth.

EDIT PS: The Solstice, hey I got that thing for almost nothing, it's a base little slug thats fun to drive. Oh and for those that have never had one .... you can get alot of crap in the back with the top down. I would have never thought it possible.

Ok I took a shot this morn'n of the latest set of wheels I put on this thing. Not that I didn't like the last ones....just didn't like the look of 16's. I hope the turbo Verano cames standard with map lights, auto headlamps, foglamps, auto dimming mirror w/ temp and compass, 6disc, cloth, and NO sunroof. I have no use for bluetooth, a home theater, or nav so they can save that crap for options.Posted Image

Map lights - check
auto headlamps - check
foglamps - at least optional
auto dimming mirror - check
temp/compass - not in mirror, but yes they are there
6 disc - changers are being phased out across all manufacturers, sorry
cloth - probably leather or leatherette standard
sunroof - will be your choice

Plastic seats what a joy, leather almost as bad, can do without the 6 disc. Will not buy if a sunroof is standard.

Yea for me at 6'6" tall, sun roofs eat up valuable head room. I will pass on them also.
